Stanford Center for Health Education, Digital Medic
Access to health education is a human right.
The World Health Organization reports that trained and supported community health workers could prevent 3 million annual child deaths worldwide. However, many medically-underserved communities lack access to health worker education as well as general public health education.
At Digital Medic, we are committed to reaching health workers and communities worldwide with accurate, timely, and understandable health information. We work to build capacity for the global health workforce, increase health-promoting behaviors, and improve health outcomes.
WHAT WE DO
We help identify high-need health topics and employ human-centered design principles to create relevant, actionable, and enjoyable learning experiences.
We partner with non-governmental organizations, governmental bodies, and communities to co-create, distribute and evaluate digital health education content.
We measure the impact of digital health education initiatives and continuously iterate based on our findings. We are a collaborative learning lab and share research to promote global advances in digital health education.
